OBITUARIES

Dela May Haley

The five-year-old daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Will Haley, living in 
the Hopewell district, died Thursday from the effects of being burned.  
The little girl was trying to put out a fire on the carpet that was 
caused by a piece of burning wood falling out of the stove, and 
her dress caught fire and she was soon enveloped in flames.  She 
lived but a few hours and was in terrible agony.  The funeral was held 
at Hopewell Church Friday afternoon.
